Slowly down the steps... I had no idea how long I had been down there. Every step echoed... My finger trailed along the cold stone well, careful of my every step. My eyes started slowly adjusting to the darkness. I could start to make out the end of the stair way. It was a small doorway. I take a step into it, and a moment after it a wall drops down, enclosing me in the small room. I turn around, banging on the stone.
"Help!" I scream. "Rex!"
A bright light fills the room, stinging my eyes. I was in a white room, black tiless scattered on one side of the left side of the room, but I was too disoriented to notice. On the other side a table pops out. I could make out a 3x3 grid made out of square buttons. It starts flashing.
I hear a voice squawk. I look around, trying to see where the voice came from.
"Hello?!" I call out. "Let me out of here!"
You have taken too long. Input code immediately.
A loud buzz follows the voice. I glance around the room again and begin to feel something wet surround my feet. Water. Water was filling the room. I was going to drown unless I get out. I run to the pannel and input the first sequence I think of.
A loud buzz omits the rooms.
You have two more attempts.
Water begins filling up faster. It was at my knees now. My breathing becomes shallow. Without thinking I input another sequence.
A louder buzz.
I begin hyperventilating. The water kept gushing higher and higher. I couldn't throw this last one to a guess. The water was at my chest. My head started spinning. I have to start swimming now. I only have about three feet of air left. My airs dart around the room, looking for something, a clue, anything.
I notice the black tiles again. They were in a sequence. One black tile in every set of nine white tiles.
My air space was about to run out. I take a large breath as water surrounds me. I force my eyes open memorizing the pattern. I swim down to the pannel. I input the sequence as carefully as I can. I hit the last button. I was starting to lose the last of my breath. The room went silent. Then blackness enclosed me. I couldn't see anything. Only could feel the water... Slowly... Moving in a current. I swim in that direction.
I slam head into the stone wall. I try to let out a cry of pain, but that doesn't work under water. I was put of air. I started feeling dizzy. I feel the current, then around the wall until I find the opening. I push myself out, finally emerging from the water. I try to take a breath but end up gagging from the water in my lungs. I cough cough, gasping for air. The hallway I was in was dimmly lit by torches. I touch me hand to where I gashed my head. It stung, and I felt a large bump and wetness. I look at my hand, blood. Great. I begin to slowly stand up, still coughing.
"Rex!" I say as loud as I can, then cough. I stumble down the hallway until it feeds into a room. I turn my head to see someone sitting up on the floor. They quickly jump to their feet.
I squint trying to make out there face.
"Creel?! Er, Lenslook, I, what, uh. What are you doing here?!"
